Bertil Hille, the Wayne E. Crill Endowed Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, has been selected as a winner of a Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award for his research supported by NIH National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Javits Awards provide long-term support to investigators with a history of exceptional talent, imagination, and preeminent scientific achievement.
The award will support continued funding, up to 7 years, of Bertil’s long-standing grant on Molecular Properties of Ionic Permeability in Nerve, currently in its 44th year. This is the second Javits award that Bertil has received. Since the award was established in honor of the late Senator Jacob Javits in 1983, faculty members in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics have won 9 Javits Awards.
